The first thing you notice about the new Leica C1 with 38-105mm aspherical zoom lens is its refreshingly sleek styling. It is a compact camera that truly looks like a Leica; its curved edges and a silver aluminum body are quite reminiscent of the classic Leica M series cameras. Of course, being a compact, it is slightly smaller than an M series camera in both width and length, and much lighter. If you are already a Leica fan, you're almost guaranteed to fall in love with the well-styled, easy-to-use Leica C1.
This fully-automatic camera offers a remarkable variety of mode selections beyond flash-on/flash-off. For example, there is a setting for bright light situations (such as a snowy field or the beach) where it is necessary to compensate for the normal exposure calculation the light meter would make. It also offers an ample automatic shutter speed range from 1/500 to 30 seconds with timed manual exposures of up to 99 seconds.
The sophisticated zoom lens worked fast and allowed us to compose our shots quickly. The focal length of the lens can be adjusted to five different settings: 38mm, 60mm, 75mm, 90mm, and 105mm.
Camera is in Very Good shape with some small scruff marks and shooting perfectly. Comes with the original plastic "lunch box" case and a nice leather case. Very rare.
